What is Krion?

Krion, the Solid Surface from PORCELANOSA Group

Krion is a new generation solid surface developed by Krion Porcelanosa group.

Krion is a material that is warm to the touch and similar to natural stone. It is made of two-thirds natural minerals (ATH – Alumina Trihydrate) and a low percentage of high-resistance resins. This composition gives Krion a number of exclusive features: it does not have any pores, it is anti-bacterial without any type of additive, it is hard-wearing, highly resistant and easy to repair, only requires minimum maintenance and is easy to clean.


Krion is cut in a similar way to wood, allowing us to cut the sheets, connect them and thermoform them to create curved sections, and can even be injected during the production process, making it possible to create different designs and projects that are impossible to achieve with other materials.

Seamless sections can be created, preventing liquids from being absorbed and making cleaning and maintenance easier.

We offer a wide range of colours, including a white finish that stands out for its purity and neutrality in comparison with other similar material.

It is an ecological material, as it is 100% recyclable. All products made of Krion can be reprocessed and reused in the production cycle.

Solid Surface: the safe, hygienic surface for sanitary use

Krion is used in various healthcare spaces, from hospitals and operating rooms to treatment rooms and dental clinics.

Its innumerable features and properties make it the perfect option for installation in places that need to be fully disinfected. As it is not porous there is no need to use bactericidal compounds in its composition. It thus guarantees an aseptic surface which is free of germs and prevents the proliferation of pathogenic microorganisms. Given its sterile characteristics, Krion is suitable for direct contact with food and medical equipment.

Properties of Krion which facilitates the absence of bacteria’s

With the condition of Krion as an almost zero-porosity surface, contributes to an atmosphere free of bacteria and microorganisms that are not able to reproduce. This impossibility of bacteria proliferation favours the creation of aseptic atmospheres which guarantee the healthiness of spaces in medical settings.

Gastronomically speaking, this almost zero porosity, together with the transformation of the material with imperceptible joints, they make it an ally for such special environments. No bacteria can grow due to the Krion being non porus and no joints.


What are the benefits of Krion?


Krion does not allow bacteria or fungi to grow or spread. This is an intrinsic property of the composition of the material, without the need for additives to achieve this permanent effect.


Technically Krion achieves a Whiteness of 99,8%, if we combine this with its high Light Reflective Value, we find a pure and luminous material, something unique in Solid Surface materials.


Krion is an ecological material, as it is 100% recyclable. Any product made of KRION® can be reprocessed and used again in its production process.

a high mineral content

This material is made of two-thirds natural minerals and a low percentage of high-resistance resins.

easy to clean

Any normal stain, superficial burn, graffiti or marker pen stain can be removed, immediately returning the surface to its original appearance simply by following the recommended cleaning instructions.

a lightweight material

Because Krion has a lower density than other solid surfaces, like high-performance porcelain, artificial quartz or natural marble, it is easier to handle, for instance in the creation of countertops
and more lightweight furniture, without relinquishing all the other properties of this solid surface.

low thermal conductivity

Thermal conductivity is a physical property, determining a material’s capacity to transmit heat. The lower the thermal conductivity, the higher the material’s insulative capacity. Using Krion on walls or other surfaces contributes to the energy efficiency of rooms or façades.

bending strength

Bending strength is a combination of tensile and compressive strength. This type of load can deform materials by making them sag. Many solid materials cannot withstand high loads and they crack. In contrast, Krion has a high bending strength. Thanks to its high bending strength, it is easier to transport and it can be used to create aesthetically pleasing overhanging sections and surfaces with higher safety guarantees than other materials.

non porous

Krion is a non-porous material so it prevents the build-up of bacteria. This makes it ideal for places with strict health and hygiene conditions, such as operating theatres or clean rooms.

resistant to impacts

Krion has the highest capacity to absorb impacts of all solid surfaces. In impact tests using largediameter balls (324 g) dropped from a height of 1.9 metres, it withstood ten consecutive impacts without breaking, demonstrating its very high resistance.

food grade

Krion is a food-grade product and meets US and European standards, meaning it can be used in contact with foodstuffs.


Krion sheets can be thermoformed to create curves or shapes of varying soft radii by this technique.


Krion Lux can be used to create backlit spaces. By mixing different thicknesses of the material can be achieve spectacular light effects.
